Subject Re: axis2 with rampart - Query in Secure Token Service
Date Thu, 08 Mar 2012 08:35:29 GMT

Rampart STS is implemented as per the Security Token Service framework
defined by WS-Trust specification. It defines how to issue security tokens
based on a RequestSecurityToken message. Also when a token is issued the
relevant subject information is extracted from the WS Security measures
applied on the STS.

But if required, you can use the extend the existing functionality by
writing your own token issuer and plug it into Rampart and issue tokens
through an API call.
